Millions of computers, printers, fax machines and other electronic equipment become obsolete each year. Disposing of this unwanted material can be problematic; the lead, mercury and other toxic substances found in these items make them unsuitable for disposal in local landfills.Recycling is a responsible, effective way of disposing of unneeded, excess or obsolete equipment.
Midwest Computer Recycling, Inc. will place usable equipment in schools or other non-profit organizations at your request.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified most electronic scrap as hazardous waste. This "e-waste" is a growing global problem; in the US alone, it is reported that over 30 million PCs are scrapped each year. Improper disposal of this waste would add dangerous amounts of heavy metals such as lead and mercury, and toxic chemicals such as polybrominated flame retardants to our country's landfills.
